Surfing Einstein

Surfing Einstein

This phenomenal film delves into dark matter, but gloriously manages to make hard science sparkle off the screen. In 2015, a group of Italian physicists managed to prove Einstein’s theory about gravitational waves. They depicted their scientific breakthrough in this unique dance documentary, in which they whirl through their own offices and laboratories and show how their success was certainly not without setbacks.

A film that translates abstract theory into dizzying dance, set between devices to measure what we cannot see and capture what we cannot express.
